We deliver customer and market insights which enable our property clients to develop the most dynamic and innovative property solutions.

About us

Brickfields Consulting offer specialist property research and strategy consultancy. By unlocking market knowledge, we enable you to capture the true value of your assets. It is our belief that only in understanding your market, can owners fully realise the potential of place. This belief has created a market reputation which is built on a decade-long track record of delivering innovative solutions through an adaptable mindset.

The value of our process

The value of a place is determined by how effectively it resonates with visitors through the experience and interactions on offer. Brickfields Consulting partners with property owners and operators to deliver long-term return on investment by creating strategies that encourage customers to visit, stay longer, spend more money and pay a premium for products or services. The financial benefits are measured by customers returning more often and becoming advocates for the destination.
Over time, these places develop a competitive advantage allowing them to command a price premium and achieve financial returns above the market average. In turn, these economic measurables also contribute to increases in the value of a property asset.

How we help you innovate

Brickfields Consulting offers a range of services covering four broad capabilities: user research, market strategy, customer experience and design activation. We provide custom strategy solutions as well as standard research and strategic tools.
